ianthorpe.jpgAustralian Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe — aka, The ‘Thorpedo’ — is entering early retirement by channeling his energy into helping people understand the dangers of climate change. In a new green documentary called Fish Out of Water, the athlete “goes on a journey of discovery in the Australian environment, visiting coal mines near Newcastle, scuba-dives over bleached coral reefs, hikes through doomed old-growth forests in Tasmania and takes in some of his country’s most picturesque landscapes where the effects of climate change are all too obvious.”

More than 800 hours of footage was recorded for the special. From the article,

“‘I’ve always been passionate about the environment and how we treat it, how we can do better, and the more I read and talk to experts, the more I realize we can really make a difference,’ Thorpe says. ‘I’ve never thought I didn’t make the right decision (to retire), there have been thoughts about what I would do with the rest of my life. But I’ve found something I’m really passionate about with this.'”

Good on ya, Ian. We look forward to checking out the special when its released later this year. Hit the jump for more.
